The Porsche Macan Turbo is about to hit stores with a brand new performance package.

It is the next best thing that you can get instead of a Turbo S which make take some time before its officially out.

The package brings a lot of changes to the car including higher horsepower, transmission, better performance and improved suspension for a comfortable ride. The kit improves the base power of the car from its original 400 hp to a cool 440 hp making it much faster on the road. The 3.6-liter twin turbo V6 engine will have about 442 lb feet of torque, which is once again much higher than the base model. With the performance package installed in the Porsche Macan Turbo, the car can race from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. The top speed of the model is pegged at 160 miles per hour.

Everything about the new performance package for the Macan Turbo is promising. The size of the front brakes is significantly increased, by about 1.2 inches so that they can provide complete control. The total size of the brake is 15.4 inches with the package installed. Active suspension management is part of the pack, designed and deployed by Porsche. The company’s proprietary package allows the driver to reduce the ride height by 0.6 inches.

Buyers have the option to adjust the ride height by making use of the self-leveling setup system. It reduces the ride height by 0.4 inches and doesn’t need any sort of expertise as leveling is done by the setup. When you go for the performance package for the Porsche Macan Turbo, the automobile brand offers an additional Sport Chrono pack to go for. It makes the exhaust system extremely aggressive giving that sporty sound along with a Sport Plus driving mode.

When you wish to go for the tuned Macan Turbo edition, pricing should never be a constraint. They are obviously going to cost a lot and for some, waiting for the Turbo S model from Porsche might sound like a better idea. For others, the performance package will set you back by $10,000 and it bumps up the total price of the car to a $86,445. It doesn’t include delivery charges which might push it close to the $90k mark. Do you find the package a worthy addition or is there something else better that one should go for?
